Monifieth St Bride’s Church Catechism Group had visitors on Thursday when four members of Meru School in Kenya described life in their country.
The church has raised over £1,000 this year towards the rebuilding costs of a classroom for Limbine School in Meru. The Catechism children were sponsored by their families for doing without some of their luxuries such as computer games, etc., as a way of sharing life experiences with their Kenyan counterparts.
Teachers Peter Kilingo and Lucy Mbugwa with pupils Emmanuel Kobia and Anthony Kimathi are part of an ongoing school exchange programme with Grove Academy.
They were able to share news of building progress with the congregation at St Bride’s last Sunday.
